Co-investigator: "Quality of Life and Survival of Patients Affected by Chronic Respiratory Failure", International Study (PW Jones, London, UK, and Mauro Carone, Veruno, Italy, Principal Investigators). This study aims to validate a newly developed questionnaire to assess health-related quality of life in patients with severe COPD or kyphyscoliosis who require supplemental oxygen and/or other non-invasive equipment to support ventilation.
The Effect of Electrical Muscle Stimulation on Exercise Performance in Patients with COPD, project begun Fall 1999, in collaboration with Drs Vahid Mohsenin and Ghada Bourjeily.
Collaborator, National Emphysema Treatment Trial, in conjunction with Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, New York, NY. Established Gaylord Hospital-based pulmonary rehabilitation program as official satellite rehabilitation center for the NET Trial.
